“Every moment he’s lived has led to this.”
It’s been a long journey “Harry Potter” fans and the end isn’t near, it’s here. The final trailer for the franchise ever has just been released and, as per usual, it’s emotionally gripping and visually stunning. We’re kind of scared to see the film considering this trailer has reduced us to a sobbing mess.
More of the final battle — as well as Harry and Voldemort’s final showdown — at Hogwarts is featured in the new trailer, as well as a revealing line from Snape: “You’ve kept him alive so he can die at the proper moment.” Ron and Hermione fans will also be pleased with a few shots in the trailer.
Also featured in the trailer is a moment book fans probably sobbed their way through — spoiler alert for non-readers! — Harry talking to his parents and godfather, Sirius Black, on the way to his death. “You’ll stay with me?” Harry asks. Lily: “Always.” Sirius: “Until the end.” Are you crying yet? If you’re not, you clearly do not have a soul or have had an unfortunate run-in with some Dementors.
It’s been an honor to grow up with and watch Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and the rest of the amazing cast and crew and we’ll always be thankful to J.K. Rowling for allowing us entry into this magical world.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” (and the death of our childhood) hits theaters on July 15.
